While the majority of the Grand Carrera range tends towards the “elegance” end of the spectrum, the Calibre 36 model is firmly in the sporting category, with its rubber strap and complex sub-dials which combine TAG Heuer’s “RS” (Rotating Disc) system and “LS” (Linear System). Following the successful introduction of the Grand Carrera, TAG Heuer announced a special Grade-two titanium version of the watch at Basel 2008- The Grand Carrera Calibre 36 Concept Chronograph.
The concept watch took the design of the Grand Carrera series further- a much more “industrial” design with an emphasis on extreme sportiness rather than elegance. Released at Basel 2009, the Grand Carrera Calibre 36 RS2 Caliper Chronograph Ti2 was almost identical to the concept watch. As well as the PVD-coated Titanium model (CAV5185), there was also a stainless steel model released (CAV5115).
The only real difference between the concept watch and the production model was that instead of having three caliper scales, the production watch has just the one. Just like the concept watch, both versions of the watch use TAG Heuer’s Calibre 36 movement, featuring the Rotating Disc System.
